Cottage life

Basically, the cottage was characterized by dark wood and splendid colors

Then the renovation began …

Skoe married is third generation at the cottage at Brønnøya in Asker. It was designed by Rikkes grandfather in 1929 and was built by a local builder who roamed from Nesodden. At that time there was a building boom on the island, and the cottage was designed according to the standard of the period: two bedrooms on the second floor as well as the living room and kitchen downstairs plus the annexe and the utedo. The cottage had become dark, and the cottage owners wanted to lighten and upgrade the cottage.

– Basically, the cottage was characterized by dark wood and splendid colors in the bedrooms. It was cozy, but it became like a kind of mountain style. We would brush up so that the interior harmonized better with the location by the sea. They were helped by Hytteliv, Jotun and interior designer Inger Ystgaard.

LIGHT UP: The ceiling in the living room was original and beautiful, so the owners were skeptical to paint it. However, they became very pleased after it was painted white. Now it lights up the whole room. Knut has a love for yarn chairs, so the dining chairs are retained. Photo: Per Erik Jæger

BARS: Before, there was a small kitchen table surrounded by cream-colored walls in the kitchen. Since the dining table is just around the corner, the owners chose to build a handy barbed with matching cabinets here. By the window it is nice to have your morning coffee and enjoy the view. The colors of the wall and interior now harmonize with the sea and the sky outside. Photo: Per Erik Jæger

MORE ORGANIZED: The hallway is spacious, but was characterized by a little disorganized decor. The wall was treated with paneling, but the roof was dark. The furniture in the hallway was painted in colors that are related to the new colors in the rest of the cottage, and the ceiling was painted white. Photo: Per Erik Jæger

MAIN OVERVIEW: Acid yellow with details in the middle blue is summery, but seemed a little heavy in a room with sloping ceilings. After the renovation, the room is painted white and the bed has a comfortable and soothing blue color.

A customized whole

Together with the cottage owners, the interior designer chose a color scheme that fits perfectly with the archipelago cottage: Dune purple and blue tones combined with white, and touches of brown and light pink. In the living room the cottage owners persuaded to paint the ceiling white. The original wooden walls remained untouched for the room to maintain its warm atmosphere. The Treseter was replaced with a practical corner sofa that gave more seating. It was also supplemented with a pair of black iron chairs.

Ystgaard saw great potential the first time she visited the cottage on Brønnøya.

The first impression was that there was a mountain hut by the sea, and the interior was characterized by peasant colors as red and blue, says Ystgaard.

She originated in the archipelago and nature outside the hut walls and chose a so-called color palette in turquoise, purple, blue, light pink and brown. The aim was that the interior should be in style to the sea and the surroundings to create a feeling of a cottage by the sea.

– To paint the ceiling white far in, we were really pleased with what it was. Now it is one of the solutions we are most pleased with; It makes the room much lighter, says Knut.

Dice blue tones

Along the window in the kitchen there is an elongated bar solution that has become the favorite place to take the morning coffee. Walls and cabinets are painted in a so-lane color and the stairs up to the second floor are painted in deep purple. The rest of the kitchen is left untouched. “We will replace the kitchen in the near future. But that’s the next project.

The bedrooms have also got a whole new expression. The children’s room has had many different colors over the years, including orange, pink and rusty. Now it is painted in various white nuances, and the original bedding has got a beautiful lavender color inside. The master bedroom is also painted white and the bedside light blue.

– We are very pleased. The rooms have become incredibly bright and bind well with colors that are related, “Knut said.

Strong affiliation to the site

Rikke and Knut now have the overall cottage they dreamed of and love to spend time here.

– Everybody knows each other and we have good memories and stories together. The fact that many of the families have been together for generations mean we have a nice belonging to the place.

Brønnøya has many meeting places for cottage owners and residents; party and concert venue that can also serve as a cinema, tennis club with court and football arena with matches every Saturday. In summer season, the cottage owners have a communal breakfast room with coffee and crispbread every morning.

– It is today’s main point of reference. We are very concerned about the social life here. At the same time, we live confidently and have the opportunity to retreat. Then we like to relax and kiss in the garden. There is a good soil on the island, so we have to work a bit to keep the beautiful view!
